Meeting so many colourful characters, while travelling on the roads.
‘Salt of the earth,’ I’m always waiting to hear their tales, yet, to unfold.
We met an elderly lady at the Caravan Park in ‘Dolphin Bay,’
She was on her ‘forever life’ journey…
Enjoying making many new friends, every day.
A little black poodle named Rocky constantly there at her side;
Her tiny furry companion, sharing precious moments on her extensive Ozzie road tripping ride.
She had told us back at home, emotionally sad, depressed and bleak
On ‘suicide watch,’ isolated, secluded and unhappy, she had there been.
Fearing that she was sitting waiting for her ‘own demise’ to come;
She’d decided to escape in her caravan and for 18 months had now been meandering along.
Having sold her family farm home to travel around…
Now she was feeling happy, active, and content and ‘living’ her life out loud!
I thought her a brave lady, to be roaming on her own
She said, ‘she had no worries though’, because she never feels alone.
Even though, far away from her luxuries and comforts of life,
She thought that her life was better now, happier, healthier and so much more simple and nice.
No more mortgage, heating bills or expensive land rates
Now she was free and easy, with no debts to substantiate.
We said our goodbyes just like old friends, hoping that we’d meet again…
These are the tribes of people, I’ll always want, to be my best friends.
